Falling Skies – now this is a press kit

by on Apr.27, 2011, under Television

You’ll hear more about Falling Skies by the end of the weekend, but a very interesting package arrived today. Inside was a satchel…and inside that was a newspaper – well, the front page of the “Boston News”, proclaiming that “WE ARE NOT ALONE!” and that massive ships have appeared over major cities. Sounds like the beginning of many movies – but this is just the very beginning for the upcoming Falling Skies series on TNT, from DreamWorks Television and executive producer Steven Spielberg. Also inside was a DVD case that looks like what I’d expect from an “ultimate platinum collector’s edition” DVD release with the pilot and another episode, and even a guide to the characters.

On the satchel was also a placard, which on the back reads, “If you had to start over, what would you bring?”

Falling Skies will air over 8 weeks, starting with the two-hour premiere on June 19th at 9PM ET/PT.

Expect some insight into the series soon…but no spoilers. Update: You can now read our First Look at Falling Skies article.

Sanctuary preview: “Metamorphosis”

by on Apr.27, 2011, under Television

In the next sneak peek clip of an all-new episode of Sanctuary, Henry enters Will’s room with the intention of asking for a favor. Henry knows all about Will’s new power after a transformation. Henry points out that a chandelier had a light bulb go out, and he’s relying on Will to replace it. Will obliges to the request and all of a sudden uses his new abilities to start scaling the wall. However, once he’s well above the ground and looking to make his next move, the sun shines through the windows and it takes a dramatic affect on Will. Watch the clip and tune in on Monday at 10/9c on Syfy to see if Will’s new power causes more pain than help.
